My deepest sympathy to Sharon's family. She was married to my first cousin Jim Adam. She was always kind with a big smile. Martha Adam Nordby.

Deepest sympathy to the family. Sharon was my cousin, her mom Mary and my mom Eva were sisters. We spent many fun hours growing up!

Sharon, an awesome lady I met when I was five. I always told my brother I would be his flower girl so when he introduced Sharon as his wife I was heartbroken...but we developed a life time love for each other. Sharon had a deep influence in my childhood and I pray she knew that. A wonderful, loving Mom. She will be deeply missed by many.
